Blue Devil Productions is proud to present Caroline Smith & the Good Night Sleeps with Feathe. The artists are scheduled to perform at 8pm on Thursday, February 25th, 2010 in The Underground located on the lower level of the Memorial Student Center at the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
Indie folk artist Caroline Smith and her ‘Good Night Sleeps’ are dancing around the Minneapolis music scene with bliss. Smiths sophisticated, crispy voice is accompanied by various acoustic instruments and splashed with harmonies creates tunes that make you want to tap your foot and clap your hands. Her traditional lyricism plays true to old time, love, folk ballads. She is the girl that brought her guitar on a camping trip and blew everyone’s mind away when she began to sing around the campfire. If Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiely) had a quirky younger cousin her name would be Caroline Smith.
H-A-R-M-O-N-Y is obviously part of the spelling in FEATHE. This local, all female ensemble of three sure knows how to harmonize! Their voices blended together form a creamy mixture of wonderful and delightful folk pop. The accordion used in most of their songs creates a strong ocean wave and sailing on top of that wave is a light guitar ship with beautiful vocal sails. Feathe is one of many bands that are helping the local Chippewa Valley music scene find a spot on the map.
This event is sponsored by Blue Devil Productions of the University of Wisconsin-Stout and is FREE to all. Please call (715) 232-2432 or go to bdp.uwstout.edu for more information.
From the Valley:
Collaborations between visual art and music seem to be on the rise in our area, with new events popping up every day. Students at UW-Stout have created a venue for this with Gallery 111, a new art space in Menomonie, Wis. Ben Teegarden, who I’ve known from the open mic circuit in Green Bay, has been active in the creation of the gallery, providing tracks for a benefit album and playing at the opening. It made sense, then, to film where he would be comfortable.
The space at Gallery 111 is artistic itself with a large picture window, a beaten wood floor and vast white walls. Ben played three tracks, each adding some instrumentation as we moved to bigger rooms. Artists and collaborators gathered in the main room, awaiting entertainment that would take the stage in the evening and pounding in the final nails needed for preparations.
Pardon Fashion Show, created and directed by Raine Nimmer and Lindsey Baker, will be held on January 30, 2010 @ 7pm at the Raw Deal in Menomonie, WI. It will be featuring regional fashion and industrial designers. They will be showing their wearable art work on the runway and later on the gallery floor of the Raw Deal. This is a great opportunity for friends to have a night out on the town while listening to DJ Dave Hannigan’s music and enjoying wearable art in fashion forward community. This event is FREE and open to all. Donations for Gallery 111 and future Pardon Fashion Shows will be gladly accepted. If you have any questions please contact Lindsey Baker by email at Bakerlin@my.uwstout.edu

New art gallery opening in Menomonie
Menomonie (Press Release) - University of Wisconsin-Stout student Hannah Schroeder has recruited fellow art students and local artists to join her in launching Menomonie's newest art gallery.
The cooperative art gallery, Gallery 111, has its grand opening from 7-10 p.m., tonight, Jan. 11, at 111 East Main Street.
According to the gallery founders, the grand opening date was selected because of the relationship between the gallery's name, its address and the numerals of today's date (1/11/10).
The cooperative gallery will display and sell a variety of works from student and community artists.

A whole heck of a lot of artists around the Chippewa Valley spend time talking about arts co-ops. Unfortunately, I think, the majority of that talk ends up as wasted breath over a pitcher of Berghoff at the Joynt or whatever the Menomonie/Chippewa Falls counterpart might be. There are a handful of art co-op type organizations in existence right now (like Arts Coming Together, Tangled Up in Hue), and there have been honest-to-god attempts in the past (Destini Artworks, anyone?), but truly strong and active art co-ops seem to be at a premium around these parts. However, some artists in Menomonie hope to change that.
Eight UW-Stout art students and two townies are starting a new co-op art gallery in downtown Menomonie – looking to have local people display and sell their creative works. Gallery 111, named for the store’s address (111 Main Street E.), is slated to open January 11, but has been displaying items from Stout students since December 18. Art from the founding members – as well as those who helped with the renovation – will be shown at the opening. Soon, others can join the co-op, so if you’re interested in getting involved or following the progress of the gallery, check out its website:Gallery111Menomonie.com. And check out the blog.

To help offset the costs of renovating and opening Menomonie's new art co-op Gallery 111, co-owner Hannah Schroeder met with local musicians to contribute songs for a CD which they could sell. The CD, East of the River, features songs donated by all-girl folk trio Feathe, former The New Science member Savannah Smith and the acoustic/electronica The New Audrey and more. See the full list here.
The CD is available for $5 and can be purchased at Gallery 111 (111 Main Street E., Menomonie) when it opens Jan. 11 or by e-mail request at email@example.com.
Look forward to a full article on Gallery 111 in Volume One's Jan. 28 issue.
